    Live Messenger in Windows 8


    Hi.
    I have Windows 8 and use classic live Messenger 2012, it connects good but all contacts appear offline, trough Windows 8 messaging all contacts ok, connected and talking.
    I tried with built in Windows 8 messaging application connected and disconected but same result.
    If I connect to other account with live Messenger 2012 all works ok, but with the account that is configured like Windows 8 logging account, don´t, it connects but all contacts shown offline.
    some help?

    Yes...messenger is going to shut down sometime this month. Just open a Skype account and then sign in with your MS account and all your contacts from messenger are all there.
